As if there wasn’t enough excitement around here, last Friday our daughter-in-law announced that she would become a United States citizen at a ceremony … Monday! We’ve been waiting for this for as long as we’ve known her, and watched as she complied with one request after another. She’s been in the US for 12 years, studying and working, but I’m not sure when she began the naturalization process.
Of course, Monday was our move day. I was crushed that we wouldn’t be there with her, and I had a wild thought that possibly DH could go for us and I could handle the move alone. In retrospect, that was one crazy idea!
Although the timing was bad for us, it happens that her mother (Peter’s other grandmother) is visiting from Ecuador right now, so she was able to be part of it. We celebrated last night with a dinner out. (No cooking at this house yet — I can’t even find the shoes I had on yesterday!)
I’m pretty sure I don’t have this card any more (we made it in camp over three years ago but I can’t find that I ever shared it here). If I did, I’d give it to our DIL to say Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here!
The technique is Faux Silk. You can find my tutorial HERE.
